I'm going to add a good surprise here. I've been using adaptive cruise control with steering assist and I'm getting the hang of it. It performs quite well overall on the freeway.

On straightaways and very gentle curves with clear lane markings it's good enough that you can temporarily take your hands off the wheel. If the curves get tighter it wobbles but it does a good enough job that all you have to do is help it a bit by actively steering to stay in the middle of the lane and not drift too much.

In more challenging situations it quits and picks back up fairly often. But that's ok because I have hands on wheel and paying attention. Given that the system is has its (documented) limitations, the silent quitting and picking back up is a feature, not a bug. I wouldn't want it to dingdingding all the time, and even in these situations it performs well enough that it makes for much more relaxed driving. Combined with the adaptive cruise control it's significantly stress-reducing.
McRat, ryzvy and docsbc like this.

Was that from a USB drive?

Completely agree. It works much better than I had hoped. I also like the fact that it allows me to speed up from the set speed and maneuver the vehicle when I want to and then smoothly takes over when I let go of the accelerator. It's also smart enough to increase the speed when I hit the blinker to get out from behind a slow moving vehicle to assist with the overtaking.

Noticed a nice surprise the other evening. The cup holders actually heat and cool cups that are inserted. A little light around the cup tells you when it's underway.

Is that an accessory option? Can you take a picture of it. I do not see a light around mine and the cup holder is actually removable, so I would be very interested in seeing how it works.

What trim level do you have? I don't think First Editions got that option.

Ours IS a First Edition. Maybe your car had to be red.
